Summer’s laugh echoes
across marble walls and thru dark forests sprung from red clay
filled with residents of my imagination.
“write, boy,” she says. “make dramas in distant galaxies,
lean poems, and thoughtful essays.”
chained by laziness, cuffed by habit and collared by Mistress Obligation
i mutter, “so many gotta-do’s,
pop-up appointments and other baggage.”
barefoot, Summer moves toward the pier. “life is….”
“i know. it happens while we’re….”
she blows me a kiss.
“no. life is now, this moment, this day, this thought.”
